As prostitution allegations swirl around Rick Pitino and the Louisville basketball program, some players are speaking out against the accusation that they paid for sex during recruiting visits.
Legendary Louisville basketball star Terrence Williams is not happy that he was mentioned in the book “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen” for having allegedly paid $500 for a sexual encounter with two women, and he wants the whole world to know that he never has to pay for sex.
Williams told TMZ, “I am not a part of that. To Louisville I am f**king Elvis Presley. So why would I pay anybody for anything?”
The University of Louisville and the NCAA opened investigations in early October into whether the basketball program provided sexual benefits to potential recruits and players, allegations made by “Breaking Cardinal Rules” author Katina Powell.

Williams, who played at Louisville from 2005 until 2009, clearly thinks that these allegations of players and recruits being provided prostitutes are false and wants Powell put in prison.
“Nobody’s gonna pay attention to a b*tch searching for money,” he said of Powell. “So you make up stuff, and you put out all these allegations. If my name’s on anything, provide proof. At the end of the day when the smoke clears, she’s going to go to jail. You need to be put under the f**king jail. You need to be put in a black f**king hole in Langley.”
Louisville head coach Rick Pitino, who has two national championships, was also a target of the allegations, but Williams isn’t having any of it.
“And Rick Pitino, he’s Rick Pitino! A Hall of Famer, a legend,” he said. “He don’t need to buy any kid p*ssy to get him to commit to the University of Louisville. It’s a privilege to play there.”
